Microsoft Ending Vista Family Discount

“Five months after its introduction, Microsoft is discontinuing a program that offered some Windows Vista purchasers the ability to buy additional copies of the operating system at a substantial discount.

Since Windows Vista went on sale to consumers at the end of January, US and Canadian buyers of Vista Ultimate have had the option of buying up to two additional copies of Vista–albeit the Home Premium version–for an additional US$50 apiece. The company had said it would re-evaluate the “Windows Vista Family Discount” after 30 June.

In a posting on the Windows Vista Team Blog, Microsoft product manager Nick White said the program would “sunset” as of 11.59pm PDT on 30 June.

“Around the time of the Windows Vista launch, we announced the Windows Vista Family Discount program to further persuade families to become early adopters of Windows Vista,” White wrote. “We’ve been pleased with the response to the program, which has enabled thousands of multicomputer families to upgrade more than one PC in their home to Windows Vista.””
